EU paves way for Syrian opposition aid

The European Union will seek to increase the range of equipment it provides to the Free Syrian Army (FSA), to stop the killing of civilians.

EU foreign ministers met today, to alter the embargo on arms sales to Syria.

William Hague explained to reporters that the change meant that non-lethal equipment would now be provided to the opposition.
